This is the authorised biography of Youssef Nada, a man who knows most of the untold story of more than half a century of rage and revolution. Through war, global terrorism and complex international crises, he was there. On the inside. A true eyewitness to history, a participant and powerbroker in events which shaped it. Youssef Nada would never promise answers, but would offer possible solutions through the ideas and philosophy he has lived to all his life as an ambassador of reason, a peacemaker and as the de facto foreign minister of the Muslim Brotherhood group who have a membership of more than one hundred million worldwide with many millions holding pivotal positions in America, the UK, and throughout continental Europe. He has a hard, clear, lucid, vision; he has insight into the terror of Lockerbie in Scotland, the 'rehearsals' for the September 11 onslaught against America and the July 7 London bombers, the Iran-Contra affair, the Beirut kidnapping of Terry Waite, and of deals and horrors that have touched the lives of individuals and nations alike. He has been involved in all aspects of the 'Arab Spring' in Egypt, including the upcoming elections in which the Muslim Brotherhood will take power. Youssef Nada was, until now, the hidden mystery at the heart of the Middle East; the part of the puzzle no one could place. It was safer. After 9/11 Nada, known throughout much of the world as a humanitarian, was branded a global terrorist and listed as such by America and the UN. The Muslim Brotherhood (al-lkhwan al-Muslimeen), the most controversial, and influential, of all Islamist 'organisations' from East to West and back again, has been at odds with many governments; it is the most potent Islamist opposition party throughout the Arab world. Youssef Nada believes that, as he is known as the Muslim Brotherhood's international political foreign emissary, all the interional intelligence agencies moved against him. Now, he had decided to step completely out of the shadows and tell the story of his life.
